This event allows you as an inspector, new to the business or a seasoned veteran, to see how other inspectors process their information and approach their work. Also, learn how we can miss things or have differing opinions on the same subject matter. Seasoned Inspectors – accept the challenge in attaining “Master Inspector” or “Inspector by Peer Review” designations to your list of credentials.
